“Isle of Green in the City of Eternity” – Urban nature tour in the Valley of the Cross and the Jerusalem Bird Observatory

Take a tour through the Valley of the Cross, into the wonders of nature hidden right under our nose.

The Valley of the Cross preserves a window onto the wild within the heart of the new and modern city. Among the olive trees we find seasonal wildflowers, animals that make their home in the heart of the city, a monastery that dates back hundreds of years, and the archeological ruins of ancient agriculture.


We will embark on a tour amidst stunning wildflowers, an ancient cistern, and a special, magical observatory devoted to Jerusalem’s birdlife.
